For the opening of the new galleries of the Department of Islamic Art, the Louvre has published a sumptuous book on the masterpieces of its collection, one of the richest and most beautiful in the world.
The book presents a chronological panorama of the history of Islamic art, with several thematic chapters devoted to calligraphy, ornament, architecture, techniques, royal commissions... Each chapter also highlights a selection of the museum's most impressive works. A final section is devoted exclusively to the art of bookmaking and illumination.
This publication coincides with the reopening of the Islamic Art galleries at the Louvre in September 2012
